This Boy's in Love

Cabaret / Comedy
Scaled this boy s in love poster no text

It's time to paint the rainbow and unleash the world's first one-man gay rom-com cabaret! Hilarious and heartfelt songs meet physical comedy and candid story-telling in one man's final shot at finding love in a big gay city. Performed by Gaulier-trained actor and clown, Adriano Cappelletta. 1st Runner Up: Best Cabaret at Perth Fringe World 2016.

Ado is 35 and he's never been in love. Ever. The urban gay jungle of Grindr and instant hook-ups are obstacles in his way to tasting romance and true love. That is, until Ado meets Felix: a human rights lawyer, who speaks like Hugh Grant and wears Italian suits. We follow their courtship as they date, dance, argue and move in together on their way to becoming BFF's and their big gay wedding.

"Cappelletta is a BIG performer and his little cabaret is absolutely bursting at the seams.... a nice little gem" Perth Arts Live

"His hour of song, self-deprecating humour and old school nightclub dancing is a charmer" Sydney Morning Herald
